West Jones' Maurice Pruitt is coming into the offseason following a junior season where he finished with 40 tackles, 4 pass deflections, and 2 interceptions.

"I feel like I could have been better, I'm looking to make an even bigger impact next year. But the season was okay for me, I made some big plays throughout the season," Pruitt told SES Mississippi on his junior season.

The 6'0, 165-pound cornerback is looking to improve throughout the offseason before kicking off his senior season.

"My 1-on-1 game vs. wide receivers, I played a lot of zone last year, and I'm looking to become more of a lockdown corner," Maurice on what he needs to improve on before next season.
